Good Friday Morning! It has cooled down a bit, and I was able to get in my craft room for a real quick go at three challenges! My main motivator-theGrungy Monday challenge from Linda at Studio L3. As part of our exploration of Tim Holtz's wonderful techniques and products, this week we are to play with Distress Inks to our hearts content. Well, Duh! They never leave my desk! And a new challenge for me, Just For Fun which is Something Tim! And lastly, Simon Says Stamp and show a Tag! While I feel a bit guilty on the triple duty, we do what we have to do! LOL!
So, Here it is; A tag that has been wrinkle free distressed with Ancient Linen and Victorian Velvet DI's. The edges where hit with Barn Door. The stamp is, of course, from Tim, as are the Die's, the new mini hearts and mini flourish (Straight from my new shipment from Ecletic Paperie! Thanks Daisy!)! The Flourishes (grunge paper) were inked with Victorian Velvet and the heart (grunge board) were inked with Barn Door. The heart was then stamped with the large background from Tim's Papillion set, then all were sprayed with gold Perfect pearls in a mini-mister. (Yup, just rifle through the Compendium; it's all there! LOL). I then ran the seam binding through some barn door DI, and also spritzed with the PP mix; disappointing that you can't see the gold. And--Ta Dah..done! (Ok, actually took over an hour; puppy issues, had to play with the new dies and fades to get an idea, etc.)
So, have a great crafty week everyone; enjoy your weekend!
